Two new entry-level Android handsets are headed to India, both of which attempt to cram as much value into a small package as humanly possible. The Micromax Andro A60 is a re-branded ZTE Penguin, and will retail for 6,999 INR (~$152). For the price you get Android 2.1, a 2.8-inch resistive touchscreen, 3.2MP autofocus camera, and 600MHz CPU.
If the oblong stylings of the Andro A60 don’t sit well, perhaps the Motorola Charm’s more boxy approach will. This is the same Charm we have seen on various other networks, QWERTY keyboard and all. It was Motorola’s first phone to attempt a Blackberry-style keyboard (later perfected for the Droid Pro) and features Android 2.1, a 2.8-inch capacitive display, 3.2MP camera, and will be available through Aircel for 13,990 INR (~$300). Twice the price of the Micromax handset for similar features, but arguably better in build quality and reputation.
